Our Mission

Take Back Your Time seeks to challenge the epidemic of overwork, over-scheduling and time famine in the United States and Canada that threatens our health, our relationships, our communities, and our environment. We seek a renewed understanding of the value of leisure time and the costs of time stress in our lives and workplaces.

How we use our time, and measure the quality of our lives, affects people across class, gender, race, and ideological lines. What brings our diverse group together is a belief that we can shape customs, values and policies in the workplace and in our family lives that improve our quality of life and influence better outcomes for all of us. Together we can explore ideas and create plans for action while inspiring others.
